Mummies and Pumpkins and Sheep..Oh My!

The Bearded Mummy and Early Autumn Lane are now available! 

I updated my website today. I fixed some links added some bigger pictures etc. So, check it out!

I am currently working on a charity design. I was asked by a local Women's shelter to make a design for them. I need to get it finished soon because fall is a great time of year to stitch. Speaking of fall...I love it but I guess it doesn't love me. I have a cold. Blah. I thought it was a joke at first. I felt tired and had a scratchy throat. I didn't know anyone who was sick. I went to a Harvest Moon Festival last Saturday so maybe someone there was sick and not selfish. I would've been ok if they hadn't shared. It's okay not to share sometimes. In SELFISH!  PLEASE!  But no...they shared.

So, while you're just sitting there at your computer, why not check out my website? Ship's Manor

Over-dyed Threads

I love the new Gentle Art colors, especially Otter Creek, and always get excited when they send them to me. First thing that happens is I think too hard about what I can use them in and then forget about designs in progress. Yes, my attention span is pretty loose. DMC recently sent me some of their memory thread and I stared at it for a long time....dazed look on my face. I decided to use some of it for an ornament I am making for The Gift of Stitching magazine. Gentle Art, Crescent Colours and Weeks...the thread is eye candy. Now, Crescent is making rick-rack and other lacy brain is hurting. So, my question to you is this... Do you every buy something, linen or threads, and not know what to do with it? You just buy it because it's pretty (ooh-ahh).
